Mind Over Body - An Anti-aging Therapy
While viewing a scenery, our mind admires its spectacular view, carries the euphoria effect to the body. The outcome is a buoyant soul. Proven or not, this butterfly effect is damn real and one can feel it. We have implied this cause-and-effect theory in our lives. It’s time to relate these concepts to our lifespan. Birth and death of a living creature balances the ecosystem. Year by year, we grow old, our body gives way for the degeneration. This is quite natural and we can’t stop it. It affects the mind, causes the body to fasten up the aging process, hence our lifespan reduces fast in the speed of a race car.

My Perspective on PYM Mood Chews, As A Nutritionist
Stress. It’s a six letter word that we hear and experience all too often. Not only are we constantly seeing or hearing about it in the news and media, but it’s that sudden heart racing feeling when the dog throws up and you're already late to a meeting, it’s your mother birthday and you forgot to send flowers, and, oh, cars out of gas. As you are watching the minutes tick away, your hypothalamus, a tiny control tower in your brain, decides to send out the orders, “send in the stress response!”. This stress signal is the same one that triggers your body’s “fight or flight” response. Your heart races, your breath quickens, and your muscles are ready for action. While this response is great to protect you from impending danger, when it keeps firing day after day it can actually be putting your health at risk.

Honouring Blackness in Yoga Spaces - 4 Essential Black Yogis
Yoga has been an important part of my lived experience for the past three years. Through my practice, I have been able to confront issues relating to my anxiety, self-esteem, body confidence and self-compassion. Rolling out my battered and sweat-stained mat is the first thing I do every morning and the last thing I do every night. Recently, as with every other avenue of my life, I have made the conscious decision to expand and diversify. Diversify my hobbies. Diversify the content that I consume. Diversify the books that I read and the music that I listen to. For the most part, this has been immensely beneficial to my mental health and has further enriched my experience as a black twenty-something.
